This view is very nice with the plants and the fog. Colors are great but I'm not so sure if the horizon is a little bit bent down or not. Anyway,

You have captured the lishness of this area very well. It does indeed look like the road to paradise. I like your accompanying note.

Very nice view with misty fog and well composed shot. It is always the case that the photo cannot capture a complete true picture of the actual scene of misty fog unless you stand in the spot and feel it in person. Good work.

Hi Avishek, i like this one, i love how green and moutains in the background mix with the grey and humid sky, the path and its perspective is like an invitation to start a travel full of exotism in those mountains.

The road adds good diminishing linear perspective. Good light management, on the high key toned path, with no visible oe. Good colour & sharpness, also. Tfs!
